There is an issue that needs to be corrected. The subject and verb agreement. Singular subject takes a singular verb and plural subjects takes a plural verbs.

OPTION A- INCORRECT
The subject and verb do not agree. The subject 'incentives' is plural, it meant to take the plural form of 'is' which is 'are'.

OPTION B- INCORRECT
The subject and verb do not agree and also the use of 'like' in the sentence makes it seem as if the author is stating the similarities between incentives and tuition reimbursement.

OPTION C- INCORRECT
This option also uses the singular form of verb. Also, the use of 'being' in the sentence makes it redundant.

OPTION D- INCORRECT
Using 'Like' changes the intended meaning of the sentence. 'Like' is used to show the similarities between the incentives and tuition reimbursement.

OPTION E- CORRECT
Option E- is correct as it uses the correct form of verb that agrees with the subject and it uses 'such as' to clearly explain the intended meaning
